Big fuss about the EU dropping its requirement that the UK adopt the metric system. Little England saved by the Europhobes. I wonder if the Scottish Parliament would or could vote for metric and further differentiate progressive Scotland from paranoid England.
If ever the Yanks drop the miles, pounds and pints, there will be a quick change of opinion in this country. It's a desire to please to our imperial masters that keeps us on the imperial scale.
